The eighth time in nine years that HCPA has received this honor
The Household & Commercial Products Association (HCPA) is proud to announce that it has received a 2023 Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Safer Choice Partner of the Year Award. The Safer Choice Partner of the Year Awards recognize the contributions of Safer Choice partners and stakeholders who have shown outstanding achievement in the design, manufacture, selection, and use of innovative products with safer chemicals. This is the eighth time in nine years that HCPA has received this honor.
“We are incredibly honored to be recognized once again as an EPA Safer Choice Partner of the Year,” said Steve Caldeira, President & CEO, HCPA. “The demand for products that are increasingly safe for human health and the environment continues to grow, and it is a pleasure to support a program that helps consumers and workers to identify such products. We look forward to continuing a strong partnership with the EPA and the Safer Choice program on behalf of the household and commercial products industry through continued communication and advocacy efforts.”
HCPA would like to congratulate member companies who also received 2023 Safer Choice Partner of the Year Awards: Bona US, Church & Dwight Co., The Clorox Company, Jelmar, McFadden and Associates, Novozymes North America, Phibro Biotechnics, PurposeBuilt Brands, Rust-Oleum Corporation, Spartan Chemical Company, State Industrial Products, and Wexford Labs.
Safer Choice is a voluntary EPA program that certifies products made with ingredients that are safer for people, pets, and the planet. Safer Choice products undergo careful evaluation against a stringent set of human health and environmental criteria, and a product can only carry the Safer Choice label if it contains those ingredients that pose the least concern among chemicals in their class. HCPA has consistently advocated for funding of the Safer Choice program, educated member companies on the use of safer chemicals in their products, and facilitated dialogue between the specialty chemicals industry and the EPA.
